    CATALYSTS

    for optimal performance

    PK-5

    Methanation catalyst

    PK-5 is a ring-shaped methanation catalyst for conversion of carbon oxides to methane. 

    Application

    PK-5 is used for conversion of carbon oxides to methane in ammonia plants. PK-5 is sometimes installed on top of the prereduced catalyst PK-7R

    Reduced operating expenses

    Compared to conventional sphere- or cylindrical-shaped methanation catalysts, the ring-shaped PK-5 enables 30-70% lower pressure drop. This leads to very significant savings over the years, as less compression energy is required when operating with PK-5. 

    Proven performance for decades

    On-spec synthesis gas is the key to reliable performance in many chemical plants, and with PK-5 you will get maximum conversion of CO and CO2 with lifetimes often exceeding 20 years.
